total lie, but I can't resist:


yeah, I was here in the early 1900's. it was a big party; lasted weeks. Every now and then, as the band was playing and people were dancing on the roof, another crack would appear in the fresco. We'd all just laugh and have another drink. I scratched the paint on the wall, by accident. you can still see it there. That was when we packed up everything in the castle and moved on. The party, however, went on several months longer. I hear there's another one starting next week.

It looks oddly similar to the papal throne room in the Canal + tv series "Borgia".

Whenever I see this kind of stuff I'm thinking "Oh god, why". And then I always say to myself "people, that's why".

If only I could afford restoring it... well, I'd probably just waste that money or invest to never have to work for money, and money only, again.
